Air Canada begins direct flights to Tulum

With almost all the major U.S. airlines announcing plans to fly to the new Tulum airport, it’s no surprise that Canada’s leading airline is getting in on the game.

Air Canada has announced plans to launch non-stop flights from Montreal and Toronto to Tulum next spring, the latest airline to signal its intention to serve the new Tulum International Airport.

The Toronto-Tulum flights will have two weekly frequencies, with service on Fridays and Sundays. The year-round flights will begin on May 3.

As for the Montreal-Tulum service, the flights will operate once a week on Saturdays, with service starting on May 4.

“We are very pleased to add two new destinations to our global network, Tulum, Mexico from our Toronto and Montreal hubs,” said Mark Galardo, Air Canada’s Executive Vice President of Revenue and Network Planning.

Tulum, located about two hours south of Cancun in the Riviera Maya, has become one of the most popular destinations in the Caribbean-Mexico region in recent years, turning what was a quiet coastal town into a booming tourist destination.

“Without connectivity there is no tourism, and the two new routes to the new Tulum International Airport, which is ready to receive five million passengers, will boost the arrival of tourists from our second most important source market of international tourists,” said Miguel Torruco Marqués, Mexico’s Secretary of Tourism.
